Have you ever noticed how one person's problem in the family affects everyone? This is true in all families, even the Brady Bunch! One of the reasons this occurs is because our reactions to each other often serve to "keep the problem, the problem". Working together as a family in counseling gets people off the blame-game and on to ways of relating that bring the respect back. As a specialist in family systems counseling and clinical author in professional literature I enjoy working with families of all ages in a variety of interactive/experiential methods to help family members learn how to communicate and connect. The end result is increased harmony and productivity.

The family is the most important institution in society and I take great pleasure in helping a family to resolve their issues and move towards health and happiness. I understand as the mother of 4 children myself what the pressures there are for families. We are in a bad ecoonomy now and many families face economic uncertainty and stress. My focus in family therapy is to build cohesiveness and resiliance.

All families face serious challenges over a life time. Are you facing stressors that are affecting the entire family? Are you having trouble coming together to resolve issues that you and your family are facing? Your family can begin to learn how to mediate stress and begin to understand how a stressful situation can affect each family member. Together, we can learn ways that your family can use to get through a crisis. How a family manages a difficult experience, handles stress, reorganizes, and moves forward with life can influence current and long-term adjustment for family members and is important for the survival and well-being of the family unit.

All families are different and unique and all families experience periods of difficulty and disconnectedness. It can sometimes take the help of an outside perspective to assist families with identifying dysfunctional patterns and dynamics that exist within a family to try to bring better cohesion, communication, and unity to the family unit. I can help with exploring underlying difficulties that exist within family units, help families talk to and listen to each other more effectively, and work with you to create a more peaceful and overall happier family unit.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

I primarily work with children and teens on an individual basis, but sometimes find that family work is necessary. I find it most helpful when the relationship between child and caregiver is strained and needs to be repaired and strengthened. Family therapy can also be helpful when the family has difficulty communicating at home and attempts to do so result in intense fighting. Family therapy compliments individual therapy very well and allows the parent to have an active role in their child's healing journey.

Are you struggling with troublesome behaviors that continue to come up with no relief in sight? Regardless of the origin of the problem and if it's considered to be a specific person's issue of family problems, the solution often involves the family together to address it. As a therapist, I will help you to identify those disruptive patterns that seem to repeat and assist with finding the inherent strengths that exist within the family system.

Life is complicated. It is hard to create and maintain healthy relationships with those we love the most. There are many different thoughts and feelings, from the past and present, that exist in all of our interactions with one another. It isn’t always simple, whether we are trying to effectively communicate feelings, establish rules for the household, navigate the waters of intimacy, guide our children toward a successful future or simply attempting to provide a healthy meal while working, studying, and cleaning. The world and our family lives are increasingly more complex. Though we all have the tools within ourselves and within our relationships to create thelives we want. Through our psychotherapy approaches whether parenting coaching, couples or...(view profile to read more)

I grew up in a family too. What is it with this most necessary unit of human existence that makes it so problematic? Why can't we speak our truth to the people we ought to be closest to? I call it the Law of Inverse Emotional Risk (LIER). We are most likely to hide the truth from people whose love we most fear losing. In working with families, I have found that, at the root of most of their problems are secrets, unexpressed feelings, resentments, and blame. How do you talk about such things? There is a way. It has four steps: Take responsibility - Admit the past - Live together - Keep it going; TALK for short. If you want to learn it, call me, email me, come see me. You get a free first session and I will tell you all about it.

In addition, I will work with families seeking therapeutic support dealing with grief and loss, or those seeking healing from extended family or family of origin issues.

I work with a lot of adolescents struggling with anxiety and/or depression. Family involvement is an important component of their treatment, as adolescence is a challenging developmental period to navigate. Adolescent clients often feel misunderstood and isolated in their experiences, so communication is an important factor in alleviating these feelings.
